Peter, my apologies, I got so wrapped up in frustrating leaking BSA petrol tanks last night that I forgot to look for the part number, I'll do it at lunch time. I would not recommend running the V3 dry, I burned my plates up in a very short time on my egli when I first got it. I believe that if the plates are soaked in oil for a day and then fitted you can run dry as long as the housing is drilled, vented or left off to keep things cool. However, for the last four years i have run mine wet on the egli, the only issue being that you need to use the stronger springs or eventually there will be a bit of slippage when accelerating hard. Basically to run wet all you do is leave out the big seal in the case behind the clutch and drill a couple of holes near the bottom of the clutch chamber so that it can drain. Neal Videan can provide proper instructions, although i may still have the paperwork that came with one of my V3s.Mark
That would be great thanks, mine is making bad noises when they get a little warm , I am running it dry .
